OF INTEREST TO WOMEN
What Every Bachelor Misses
By Helen Rowland
Doesn't it make you smile
When people say to you,
"DO come up and see our little home?"
Because, if you have ever had a home of your own,
Or know anything at all about • homes,"
You are perfectly aware *
That you never WILD see their 'little home." f
No matter how often you 'go up!"
You will see their furniture, and their best rugs, and their pictures.
And their collection of curios and antiques, and their bookcases.
And their "grandfather's clock" that never goes,
And their company china—and all that'
But these aren't even a PART of their ''home."
HOME? ' Home Is the queerest thing!
It is the large, jolly-faced kitchen clock, that ticks out tie minutes so noisily
for the pudding and the roast.
And the pert little ivory clock on the dressing-table,
And the wise old business-like clock on the desk all the busy, bustling
companionable old clocks! ,
And the calendars—
The one with the nice, bold, big black figures over the kitchen sink,
And the tiny brass one on the desk, and the one with the little pink roses
and the Dresden shepherdess on it. •
And the faithful old thermometer that hangs behind the window curtain.
And your favorite whisk-broom on the hook i>ehind the door.
And the shoe box, where you can go any moment and find
And the old tool box full of fuscinating junk.
And the reading lamp, with the comforting green shade.
That is no relation whatever to the pink silk lights you turn
And the battered old percolator that makes such delicious, hei
But is not even a forty-second cousin to the shining copper o
forth after the dinner party;
And the lovable, yellow, frazzled, dog-eared old hooks that :>
eloset shelf, 'way out of sight.
And far, far removed from the gorgeous shiny dr- luxe ed
And the little sewing table, which is a veritable treasure ehesl of parti
colored silks, and fancy buttons, and old broken jewelry, and scraps of once
loved party gowns.
But which is always closed tight and camouflage,] with a dolly and a vase
when visitors come—
That is HOME!
And, though visitors never SEE it at. all,
You know Instinctively, the moment you enter a house,
That it Is THERE!
And, without waiting to glance at the curtains, or the rugs, or the com
pany china, and silver and embroidered linen.
You exclaim, "Oh, isn't it homey! ISN'T it homey!"
And if it isn't there, no matter how beautiful things are.
You sit around for awhile and then reach lor your hat and say,
"Well, I think we must he going."
Because you feel that you'd as soon be sittipg In a department store.
And it's just these little, common, comfortable things
That keep a husband home e.venings.
And it's just THESE little things—and the sort of a person they stand for—
That every bachelor misses—and dreams about, regretfully.

Easter (ta rades the white suit of
heavy silk or light wool is as impulur
as it is essenfial. Oyster white khaki
kool, of which the costume in the
photograph is made, has all the charm
of a heavy rough silk, which lend« it
self well to semi-tailored lines, with a
lightness of texture which suggests
summer materials. This suit is one of
the smartest designed for the l'altn
Beach season. The coat is of the new
slip-over cut which suggests the
sweater, with a self-lucking cord of tin
silk at the throat.
The collar und broad soft girdle are
of navy blue and white checked moire
silk, the pocket slits and cuffs are
lined with the same dark silk and the
dark covered buttons add a chic bit
of ornament. The skirt has a new
touch in that the full side pleating is
stitched tight at the hern line.
